Former "Roseanne" star Sara Gilbert is returning to TV as one of the celebrity mothers on the panel of the new fall daytime chat show “The Talk.”
What sets her apart from the other women, however, is that Gilbert’s kids have two mommies.
While promoting the new show at a Television Critics Association press event in L.A. on Wednesday, Gilbert, who has a son and daughter with her TV producer partner Allison Adler, confirmed that she is a lesbian.
Speaking about her sexuality, she said, “I don’t think it will be a problem. I don’t ever really think of things as ‘out ‘or ‘in.’ I just think I am who I am, and when topics come up that are appropriate, I’ll talk about them and share when it seems right.”
Until now, Gilbert, 35, has not publicly discussed her private life. In fact, the CBS press release for “The Talk” mentions the husbands of co-hosts Julie Chen, Leah Remini, Holly Robinson Peete, Sharon Osbourne, and Marissa Jaret Winokur, but omits Adler. That was Gilbert’s decision.
“This is a talk show, so obviously I’m going to be discussing my life more, and I felt that the first place I wanted to do it wasn’t in a CBS press release,” she explained to reporters at the TCA event. “It just seemed impersonal, and I felt like I’d rather come in person and talk to you about all that stuff here.”

I knew she was gay when she was on Roseanne, she Is a big part of what made the show a success, I love her on the View. to all of you gay haters, F you!!!!!!!!!
It doesn't surprise me at all. But why referring to her as Rosanne's' Sarah G. Wasn't that a sitcom in a former millennium ? Should most people know her from her already tough role in it.? Why not telling us that she's Lesbie Winkle in BBT ?
kind of knew she was gay ..... sorry ..... just like rosie and ellen ... there is something about them that gives them away as being gay. don't care for ellen cause she always has attractive females on her show and she probably gets a big "hard on" from that. i never cared for her humor, but i see many people do. if i sound prejudice ... i'm not .... i just know they are gay, and i don't care for that lifestyle for anyone.
Maybe what gives them away is that they look like MEN. Sara looks like a man in the picture above and has since she was about 6. Ellen's tongue gets hard when she interviews hotties.
I never knew Sara was gay and was actually quite surprised, i'm not into those celebrity gossip shows about who's doing who or whatever! Whatever floats ur boat and whatever makes u happy!!
If it is so right to be gay, why can't they make a baby without a third party?
I believe there will be a time in the future where men are no longer needed to help make babies, no sperm required, but still may be very well desired as it is the "natural" way of reproduction in mammals. Scientists have made this occur in mice by combining the nucleus of one female’s egg with that of another. The female offspring survived to adulthood and now has babies of her own. It can definitely happen in humans some day.
Yeah we didn't see that coming!
She did not choose to be a lesbian. She will not go to hell for being a lesbian, my God would never condemn someone to hell for this. And this will always be a hot topic, at least in our lifetime, there are too many haters. We are all Gods children, shame on everyone who spoke ill of her. I wish I was more like y'all, you know perfect...just saying
Whether she is or isn't, no biggie, in my minds eye she was a lesbian ;-)
i'm a lesbian...except i have a p e n i s
you're funny, except you're an i d i o t
if the door is still open .... please ...... GET BACK IN AND LOCK THE DOOR!
Sara Gilbert is a wonderful actress and has been in many things. ER, 24, Simpson's, just to name a few! She's been in several movies as well and has gotten a plaque on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It is sad that she has to even mention anything different about her partner but in all honestly, I don't think this has been an issue so much for most of the world. We love who we love and raise our families and the most important thing is to be respectful, responsible and loving. That is it. We shouldn't have to 'explain'. I only wish Sara had mentioned her partner when the other actors mentioned their husbands. It would help to lesson the gap between straights and gays and be one more move in the direction that we need to go – that is to be linked equally with our chosen partners just as marriages are linked in the site of all.
You know people in TV world know they have no real talent. The only way they get someone to their new movie or read their new book or watch their brief talk show is to COME OUT OF THE CLOSET (again in this case), or say they were beaten as a child, or had an affair with their daddy, or gets arrested for drugs prior to movie release. People, go outside and do something with you kids or family and forget these stupid people. I'm not saying they are all stupid, but you know what I am saying, becasue you are not stupid. Make it Happen!!!!
She's a lesbian??? hee hee
A) "Gilbert, confirmed that she is a lesbian." There's a shocker.
B) "Gilbert, who has a son and daughter with her TV producer partner Allison Adler."Does one of them have more gear than your standard female? If not, I'd say "with" her partner is a bit of a stretch. But hey, nothing says love is beautiful like store bought sperm and a squirt gun..
I will be sure pass that along to all those straight couples that needed fertility doctors to help them have children, and all the adopted kids out there. All that really matters in parenting is the act of conception. All the hard work that comes after that doesn't matter, it's just the brief act of mating that counts.
they should announce this about her every two yrs.
Who the hell cares about this grap, has she found a cure for cancer, has she put her life on the line for the rights and liberties of Americans. The first time I ever saw her on Rosanne I knew she was gay. So much for the insight of CNN.
Here's a flash, I'm white, straight, work a honest job, give back to my community, served in the Armed Forces of USA. Give to the poor. Please, no pictures and respect my privacy.
I thought she came out YEARS ago... besides... who cares?
Is anyone surprised? I hope she has a happy life.
nahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!! really?? no way lol
Why should I care?
big whoop! she is who she is, if you haven't figured this out yet, you weren't paying much attention. she's great on "big bang theory"
I don't get it?
in a related story....the sun rose today.
I always enjoyed her on Little House on the Prairie.
Too bad. I had the hots for her back in the day. My hopes and dreams are dashed.
Better a Lesbian than a Morbian!
Coming out–publicly, in particular, for someone with a public presence–is a big deal. I wish her well.
I do not think this is news, thought that this was atleast a strong rumor for a while. and of course it makes no difference to me.
I am using this forum to officially come out and say that "I am a Lesbian trapped in a man's body". Please do not use this opportunity to harass or make fun of a condition that I was born with. I live this life everyday and I'm trying to change but I don't think it's working.
Truth is, she never had any other choice but to be "gay"....there isn't a man alive that would've touch that. Besides wasn't she the 12 years old butch on Roseanne. Yeah, BIG surprise.
Uh, we knew this when she was a kid on Rosanne.
This isn't news – her being gay was reported a couple of years ago
I always thought the scenes with her boyfriend on Roseanne seemed super fake. Now I know why.
I always thought she was cute and lively, resilient and funny. All the best to her.
Just another no-hack, talentless actor trying to make a name for themselves!! But she really screwed up, the in-thing nowadays is to say that your "bi" so that the media fawns over you. Regardless of her faux-pas, coming out of the closet to improve your career only works for the "attractive" females that guys want to sleep with!
Confirmed? Confirmed what? She's been out of the closet for years now? Welcome to 2005!
"When you die you pay the wages of sin." As Paula Poundstone once said: "After taxes, it's probably just a tired feeling."
It's nice seeing all of you church people getting warmed up for worship tomorrow.
We will all go to hell. It is the grave. When you die you pay the wages of sin. When you are resurrected, then you can have the chance of life forever on earth. God will judge her. He is the only one with the authority and the right to judge.
Read Romans 7:18-25.
Who here is really surprised?
'tom in dallas' for the love of God please, please, please change your name to 'Tom in San Francisco' or 'Tom in Idiotland' or anything else. I would hate for people on this board to think that any other native born Texans might agree with or sound like you. You are such a loser... ugh!
What village are you from? I'm sure they miss their idiot!
Hasn't this been know for ten years or longer?
Wow. Big announcement...except everyone has known for fifteen years, even if she didn't.
Though I liked her as a smart mouth brat on Rosanne, I despise her being a lesbian.
Still, even though I'm anti-gay in the fact that such relationships are immoral, I would like to consider her a friend-who happens to be female-if I knew her privately.
Since one's personal choices affect society as a whole, then it is absolutely correct she should make this announcement at this time (for the benefit of those who either didn't know or chose to ignore until now). Everyone deserves the right to know how Ms. Gilbert's lifestyle will affect their community.
I wonder if she'll have her half-sister Melissa on the show.
Abnormal lifestyle. Not natural. ick.
Yeah, but your computer grew on a tree. If unnatural is that much of a problem for you, get rid of all the unnatural stuff in your life.
No? Didn't think so.
She would have looked better in a flannel shirt and jeans. My guess is she wears the strap on.
I never would have guessed. Like it was not obvious years ago when she was on Roseanne. Sad people have to confirm their orientation repeatedly or at all.
This is NOT news....a no-talent lesbian...........desperately trying to get back into the news/headlines
I lost two sailors over here. Both of their bodies were finally recovered. Can't find that headline on this site......but I find this...and Chelsea's wedding? Sometimes I question why I wear this uniform.
This is an E N T E R T A I N M E N T page, IDIOT!!!!! You obvious lack of intellegence and limited lack of reading comprehension is no excuse for being too stupid to live.
She still needs to do the hair thing,, damn girl, looks like a rats nest
Um... Did someone forget to tell her that you only get to "Come Out" once?
She "came out" years ago on some talk show...
she: "I'm a lesbian!"
us: "Big Deal. We already knew."
How is it possible that she is the last person to find out that she is gay? Everyone else has known it for over a decade...
Sara.. YOU GO GIRL!!!!!! Looking forward to your POV!
Why is what you prefer in the bedroom a cause to "come out"? Do people into bondage make an announcement to the world? If you finally accept that you're a pedophile do you sit down with mom and dad and break the news to them? If your kink is whipped cream and a Batman costume do you call the press? I mean, come on, tmi...
a lesbian talk show host with a sense of humor.......where have I seen that before......... o – 0
This doesn't surprise me at all. My gaydar was going off the charts way back when she was on Roseanne. All I have to say is that if she's ever single again, I'd love a date! :-) Sara is GORGEOUS!
smothered in underwear!
TUBE STEAK SHE DON"T WANT ANY CAN"T YOU READ
I thought Roseanne was Bi
This is the biggest story of the year!
Um.....this is such old news, she came out years ago! Why all of sudden is it making news again! DUH!
They have to promote the show she is confirming that she doesn't like the tube steak.
this is ssssuuuuuppppeeeerrrrr old news; but, who cares anyway?! Darlene Conner rules!
She's been out for years – why is this suddenly a news story? She announced she was gay years ago on LKL when he had the Roseanne cast on.
Really?...nooooooo......I don't buy it .next thing you'll try to lie about is that liberache and clay aiken are gay too......
The headline is REALLY old news, but at least some of the story is current.
Personally I would like to see her back on her own sitcom, although I have enjoyed seeing her bit by bit on The Big Bang Theory.
For all of you who think this is not news and why would they bother wasting press space for this...YOU clicked the link. YOU read the story. So to YOU, it IS news.
Nope. Just stopped in to leave a comment!
Um, she came out years ago, back before she did a stint on ER.
Why is this news?? She came out years ago. Knew she had a female partner. Knew she had kids. Move on.
As if we didnt know this already.. hope she does better on this talk show than she is doing on HawthoRNe...
Congrats to Sara! OURsceneTV is proud of you!!!
Is there anybody straight in Hollywood. Now that would be newsworthy, a celebrity.coming out saying they are straight
Like this was a big surprise. It was pretty obvious when she was a kid something was not right with her.
Really? Define "not right". Are you the authority on "right"? I think not. Sounds like a pretty bigoted statement, Archie.
it all started with adam and eve, not adam and steve...
Two Mommies! Lucky kid will nurse for as long as he wants!
But will frsutrated and hungry half the time.
I always found her so lifeless and depressing...I hope that is not from being a lesbian.
She should go back in the closet...She's still ugly..
I believe you should only be allowed 1 mommie
I kinda wish you never had one!
Wow Tom, a little bit of hater aren't we.
WE? Are you at hater too?
Dude, if you are joining the relationship police, you have bigger worries than making sure no one has two mommies. Once you have all the families where Mommy or Daddy beats the kids badly enough to require a trip to the ER dealt with, and once you have found a way to keep people from leaving their infants in the car on hot days, then you can work on some of the less important stuff.
If too many mommies keeps you awake at night, you don't just have issues, you have a subscription.
wow...this is really old news.
shes been out of the closet years ago......HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO???????
"What sets her apart from the other women, however, is that Gilbert’s kids have two mommies."
the tone of this article is really juvenile. this might've been shocking in the 80's, but this is 2010. no one cares if she has a wife, a husband, or a harem. having 2 mommies is not shocking. its life for millions of americans whose parents are divorced or remarried.
A lesbian harem would be news. Don't see many of those in the US, even in "Entertainment-land".
She's said in the past that she's a mommy and her partner is a mommy. So I don't know why this is news to anyone now?????
Who didn't know this already? This info is not new. Honestly, it doesn't affect my life so I don't care. At least she has a job!
Someone posted "who didn't see that coming". Well, I didn't. But maybe that's because I don't look at people and spend my time wondering about who they like to sleep with. Gay, straight, by....it shouldn't make any difference. But people are so concerned with what other people are doing in their own bedrooms! That's what makes this news.
I remember reading about her being gay in a magazine article a fews years back... It was an article about the "Roseanne" cast of what they're doing now or whatever... She came out awhile back...
She came out a while back, but since no one paid attention, she's doing it again because of the new show. In ten years, she'll come out again.
Being gay is old news really. No one cares one way or the other. All of this coming out should stop.
@ nunya...what world do YOU live in? It doesn't matter if someone is gay? Thank YOU for thinking nothing of it, but listen to the news and the crap that flows from some people's mouths. There's plenty of hatred!
I thought everyone knew about this DECADES ago. Duh.
Wasn't this confirmed before? I could have sworn we discussed this years ago.
I was thinking the same thing. I could have sworn she came out in the 90s.
I thought this was common knowledge or was she just following the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy of our military?
Why would anyone take "parenting" advice from any of these women?? Just trying for some free publicity for the new show.
Straight men across the planet just let out a huge sigh of relief. Hell, she wasn't even cute when she was young. Even Sarah Jessica Parker is better looking than this chick....er, dude.....er, whatever.......
SJP the horse? :O
straight men are happy, unforunately, lesbians are running back into the closet and locking the door behind them.
And in related news, the sky is blue.
That's unrelated. This is the marquee blog, so if you wanted to find "world news" go somewhere else, idiot.
In today's news, scientists confirm the sun is hot....
We have also confirmed that you are an idiot.
Ignore "Brokaw" – they're just mad no one gives them special attention for being gay. That was a funny comment JB.
Why the nasty comeback? I think JB was just pointing out that most of us already knew she was gay. I honestly thought she "came out" years ago. And who cares? It isn't an issue, or shouldn't be.
Every show has to have its token. From the list of celebritards on this show I guess they are trying to cover all the bases by pandering to each minority group. My question is: who is representing the transgender community?
Why ? You looking for a job ?
How about inviting Chaz Bono to be on the show?
Guess I'm just naive, but all this so called coming out...........how pathetic.
Agreed. Who cares, honestly. People draw attention to the most ignorant garbage. Report something meaningful, not that another LGBT person "came out". Drama queens.
it's the straighties who are the drama queens making issue of it, asking about it, needing to report it. gays don't just wake up and decide to figure out how to get their orientation in the news anymore than you do. put the blame where it belongs. and face it, it's an issue because so many people freak out about it.
Who gives a S**T? I'm not gay but I don't go blaring it to get publicity. This being gay is such a self-aggrandizing thing. Get over yourselves.
It's important for those who are ignorant to know that there are more gay people around than you might realize...it is more self-empowering than it is self-aggrandizing (and congrats on spelling that correctly). The teens and other people who are closeted/fearful/beat down/destroyed by prejudice can look up to a celebrity like her and realize, "Hey...maybe there isn't anything wrong with me after all." Get over YOURSELF.
er, you realize it's usually not us who bring it up. the fact that you don't have to confirm gives you an inkling of what we go through. yet you still whine about nothing.
wow, didn't see that coming *sarcasm* I think she confirmed she was a lesbian when she was playing a smart@ss 12 year old on Roseanne... I remember reading this a few years ago though, so its definitely not new, news. Also, why do these "coming out" stories make news?? Guess what, I'm straight! Wheres my coverage!!!!?!?!?
That's so lame when folks say things like that (Guess what – I'm straight. Where's my coverage). Things change when 'the masses' find out that someone is gay. Kinda like your ignorant reaction – pretending that nothing changes. Some people will automatically dislike her now – others will 'know' that she's going to hell, etc. Don't act like it's no big deal until is IS no big deal!
You moron!!! No you don't have to come out straight, that's an assumed stutus w/ no limitations on it. Let me guess you are a white male too? Loser
Looks like you have gotten the gay's panties all bunched up in a wad. Shame on you!
Obviousely it is news, or ignorant people like you would not be reading it and posting comments about it. Straight people don't get coverage because people assume everyone is straight, and when they find out they're wrong they freak out. Someday it will not be news. You'll know when that day comes because people will stop reading the stories and posting ignorant comments about them. Obviousely we haven't reached that time yet.
really? we all thought you liked boys...
Until it's more socially accepted to be gay/lebsian, things like this will be considered news worthy.
What? You are?? Oh damn that should make news! :P
To David, who asked where his coverage was for being straight. How about 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, that lifestyle being promoted on television, radio, film and books? Is that enough coverage for you?
Duh....put her on that list with Clay Aiken and Ricky Martin for "who didn't see that coming".
Seriously, is anyone surprised by this? I liked her on Roseanne but it was obvious to me that she was gay.
As to the 'who didn't see that coming' remark – easy to say in retrospect. Of course, it has been kind of known since 2004 at least about Sara, but this is clearly due to her heightened profile. Plus, the public seems to have a short memory, as witnessed by Freddie Mercury and Elton John 'shockers' years after everyone on EARTH knew. I don't actually know who Clay Aiken is, and prefer not to think about Ricky Martin, so can't comment there.
Aw shucks.. this is so important I think I am really going to have to kill myself now.
"I'm shocked! Shocked to find there is gambling going on here!"
I am shocked and saddened! I would have never imagined. Cynicism intended
yeah, most people around here could care less if anyone they know lives or dies but like we all care so much who some random tv talking head beds down with...beam me up Scottie
Is'nt it a shame she had to confirm she is a lesbian??......she has been accepted as an American actress with much talent & I wish her well on her new talk show.....seems funny to have to "confirm".
Talent? She did one sitcom years ago! I'd say she's pretty average
A luke warm "talent" on her best day.
This is not "Breaking news", Sara Gilbert confirmed years ago that she is a lesbian and has two kids with her female partner. This was on Larry King a few years ago.
Melanie, She has done several things since 'Roseanne'. Currently, she is on the Emmy award winning 'Big Bang Theory'. Not saying her performance is outstanding, but she has always made me giggle. Furthermore, didn't she confirm she was a lesbian years ago? Why is this news?
This is old, old, news isn't it? Why does she have to confirm?
